Rayford went over a few of the cards and the overall strategy in his Deck. Essentially, he aims to use Guardragons to combo, with The White Stone of Legend as a way to generate extra cards. He then uses the free Blue-Eyes White Dragon to power some of his other effects. He can draw extra cards with Saryuja Skull Dread, for example, which also puts Blue-Eyes back in the Deck, allowing White Stone to get it again later. He can use it to pay for Starliege Seyfert’s effect to find Chaos Dragon Levianeer, and the Blue-Eyes can then help fuel Levianeer’s Special Summon. He was particularly fond of Nebula Dragon, which allows him to quickly put Nebula and Blue-Eyes on the field. Nebula can also be used later to add White Dragon Wyverburster or Black Dragon Collapserpent to the hand.

The Danger! aspect of the Deck gives him a lot of versatility. He can Special Summon monsters and draw cards, field monsters for an Xyz Summon or Link Summon, and draw through his Deck. They also fuel Allure of Darkness, giving him additional ways to get to his specific combos.

Rayford and his teammates are now playing in Round 6 of Team YCS Las Vegas – best of luck to them! Keep following the coverage for more Deck Profiles and other online coverage, and be sure to follow the live stream!
